After 1851, Jacob seems to have vapourised.  He may have died in Livepool in 1864 (no age indexed)
1832 Sarah (Reuben) Mather It appeard Sarah's baptism was recorded as "Reuben" in error.  Reuben is an unusual name, yet two Reuben baptisms are recorded on the same day at the same chapel.  Then, there is no evidance of any Reuben on the census, marriage or death, although clearly there is a Sarah without  a baptism. However, However, Reuben later became a name used by the family.  Where they twins?

In 1841, Sarah was aged 8 at the old White Horse, Edgworth with Isaac, Jane and family.

Left home by 1851, so presumed married William Crowshaw 8 Apr 1844
1796 - ~1834 Sarah Jackson 38 38 Sarah must have died after Dec 1832 when Reuben was born, but before 1837 when Isaac married Jame Lee.  Isaac and family were at Edgworth with Jane in 1841. 1817 - 1894 Ann Mather 77 77 Only have a Bolton Christening record for Ann (abode Edgworth), and connot find on the census, so had proabbly married by 1841 (not George Dunn 11-Apr-1833 as only 16 then).

After 1837, the births for James and Lavinia show the mother's maiden name as ROSTRON (not Rawsthorn).

In 1841, the family were at Corronation Street, Bolton.
Margret Rosethorn (60), probably Catherin's mother (TBC) was with them.
1837 James Mather Aged 4 in 1841

1803 - 1854 James Mather 51 51 Who is James Mather who married Catherine?  This is probably the James, illegitimate son of Jane Mather born 1803 in Little Lever.  In 1841, James's mother Jane was living at Old Acres (aged 70).  His marriage witness Joshua Kirkman was a neighbour.

It's quite possible the James Mather that married Catherine is a brother or cousin of Holt Mather.  Both werre spinners and both had daughters named Lavinia.

26 Nov 1826, James Mather married Catherine Rawsthorn.  His witness was Joshua Kirkman (1790-1846) from Lever.

In 1841, James (a spinner) and Catherine (both 35) were living at Corronation Street, West Bolton.  With them were Susannah (15), Jane (14), Peggy (13), Henry (8), James (4), Laviniah (1) and Margaret Rosthorn (60, possibly Catherine's aunt)
1819 Margaret (Peggy) Mather For some reason, only the mother (Sarah) is recorded on the baptism.  It could be that this is another Sarah Mather and was unmarried, and possibly married Joshua Webster, a cabinet maker on 22 Aug 1819, just 2 weeks before Peggy was born, but then why use the maiden name?

7 Oct 1839, Margaret Mather, daughter of Isaac Mather, landlord, married William Garside, Cali Printer, son of Richard Garside, weaver, both from Edgworth, full age.

In 1861 William and Margaret (42 & 41) were at Doffer Fold, Radcliffe with Fanny (20), Sarah Ann (16), James (12), Elizabeth (10), John (7), William (5), Mary Ann (4) and Ellen (9mo).  Also there were Margaret's brother Joseph and his wife and her father Isaac (65).

Mary wasn't mentioned directly in her fathers will in 1823.  However, "one cottage in Little Bolton, in the occupation of Barnabas Kitchen, was left to son in law, Henry Warburton, her husband.  Perhaps she was deceased.
1787 - 1787 Peter Mather 2m 2m Born Breightmet.

In 1851, William and Alice (30 & 26) were at Bradshaw Chapel.  Richard was a Block Printer.  They had two sons Richard and Robert (5 & 2), and Alice's young sister Jane (22) and nephew Rueben (1).

In May 1866, William and Alice Crawshaw (42 & 41) travelled to Quebec with their daughters Emma and May (14 & 6)
1796 - 1867 Isaac Mather 71 71 Isaac born 1796 was a bastard son of Mary Mather of Little Bolton.  No farther is given, although Mary Mather, if the same person, married Henry Warburton by licence in April 1801. 

He may have had a brother Jacob.  Also a posible brother of Alice Mather, wife of Samuel (both from Turton).

James may be the son of Thomas from D.L.  James was left nothing in his father Thomas' will of 1823.  Perhaps because he had moved away from the family.  However, birth is 2 years out, but closest match.

James and Mary, Crofter (when married) or Ag Labourer (1841 census) at Mount Pleasant, Edgworth in 1841.
1778 - 1855 John Mather 77 77 WARNING: There is also a John and Ann Greenwood of Great Bolton whjo married in 1781 and had over 10 children.

John's daughter Sarah was at Roscoe Fold, Breightmet, so John is probably related to Jeremy Mather.

In 1831, Jane was NOT at Old Acres.  However in 1805 (poor list) Richard Mather was an occupier (one of many) at Old Acres.  In the 1796 valuation, Richard Mather was  occupier at 46 Old Acres, Bradshaw Gate, West Side.
